Exotic open $4$–manifolds which are nonleaves

Carlos Meniño Cotón and Paul A Schweitzer

Geometry & Topology 22 (2018) 2791–2816
Abstract

We study the possibility of realizing exotic smooth structures on finitely punctured simply connected closed 4–manifolds as leaves of a codimension-one foliation on a compact manifold. In particular, we show the existence of uncountably many smooth open 4–manifolds which are not diffeomorphic to any leaf of a codimension-one C2 foliation on a compact manifold. These examples include some exotic 4 ’s and exotic cylinders S3 × .
